    Good looking out on this one!!! More heads from Zambia will surely come through and participate...here is an introduction from wikipedia on Zambian Hip Hop:-

    Zambia

    Little has been known or said about Zambian Hip Hop. In previous years what has been considered Hip Hop in Zambia, has been 'local rhythms' artists using the local language..i.e nyanja and bemba. In the more recent years a new breed of emcees has risen emulating their American counterparts but with their own style. Some of the more Famous rappers in Zambia include C.R.I.$.I.$ and Conscious as well as undergound artists such as The Holstar, Al Kani. In 2007 The Hip Hop Foundation of Zambia was formed - This is a registered arts and culture organization. The organization was formed and registered under the Zambia Association of Musicians as a group member. ZAM is registered under the National Arts Council. The organization was established to provide a platform for hip hop music and culture for its various stakeholders in Zambia, as well as spearhead the development of the industry and address issues of social development and specifically those affecting young people through the use of hip hop. The Hip Hop Foundation has six main areas that it intends to implement in which are Events, Corporate Sponsorship, Artist and Content Development and Distribution, Outreach and Awareness, Strategic Partnership and Organizational Development.
